Olive Oil Tasting, Set 1
This Tasting Contains 6 tubes of the following Olive Oils:
Sierra del Conde
Made by the house Naturvie, one of Spain's leading olive oil producers. The Sierra del Conde is a blend of 4 different olives, all from the Naturvie's own olive groves. The Sierra del Conde is a first press oil with soft tones of green almond, apple and tomato. This olive oil is a real all-rounder, used by many top chefs. From soups and sauces to salads; this oil can handle it.
This unfiltered virgin olive oil comes from the northern Spanish town of Tarragona in Catalonia, one of the oldest olive oil regions. Catalonia produces a lot of olive oil, the best of which comes from the Tarragona region. The Tarragona olive oil, made from the Arbequina olive oil, is bright and lighter in texture and has a lot of taste. It is an elegant olive oil, very suitable for salads, to bake in and with Tapas, but it also combines well with just a piece of bread.
Pago Baldios San Carlos - Oro
The house Pago Baldios San Carlos originated in the 17th century in the Spanish Valle del Tiétar. They bring different brands, all of which have their own philosophy. The Oro San Carlos is made from Arbequina and Cornicabra olives, picked on the first day of harvesting. This oil is ranked 9th on the official list of World's Best Olive Oils. The oil has a slightly bitter and fruity taste and is very well suited to rice and fish species.
Venta del Barón
When Baron Santaella was exiled to Andalusia in the 14th century because he murdered his wife, he there concentrated on making olive oil. When King Henry III tasted that olive oil, he showed his grace and restored his title. As a tribute to the baron, Venta del Baron makes a beautiful virgin olive oil of 75% Hojiblanca and 25% Picuda olives. Two years in a row rewarded with the title 'best olive oil in the world'.
Au stands for Aceites Unicos what means "Unique olive oil" and is also the chemical symbol for gold. Already in November, the Picual olives are picked. This allows the olive oil to have a lot of 'body' and gives a strong taste in the mouth. Slightly spicy and green and fruity with hints of green apple and a medium bitterness.
Frantoi Cutrera – Sicilia
Frantoi Cutrera Sicilia is a medium floral and somewhat spicy olive oil from Sicily, best used for fish, beef carpaccio or vegetables. The harvest of the olives is done strictly by hand, so the delicate fruit is not damaged before being pressed, which happens no longer than 6 hours after the harvest. The origins of Franto Cutrera date back to more than a century ago.
